With the help of residents and traders in Rochester High Street, last week saw the planting up and installation of the lamppost baskets in the High Street. These are now adorning a number of lampposts from Rochester Bridge, right through to Sun Pier. The planters have sustainable planting of Stipa tenuissima – Hair grass and Heucherella ‘Redstone Falls’. The planters will now be watered by the people who live and work around the lampposts, and will over the summer months reveal their ‘secret’ surprises…keep your eyes peeled.
Bob and Judy at City Books, 41 High Street very kindly made their garden available for the delivery and planting of the baskets for which we are very grateful and a number of businesses in the High Street have also put out their own planted containers including the Visitor Information Centre. The Blooming Rochester initiative is well on its way!
